. >> all right. >> now a question for miss breed and mr. resignato. san francisco currently provides free or low-cost health care to residents who can't afford private health insurance and do not qualify for coverage from the state or federal government? do you agree with funding this for employees who spend less for their employees health care than what the city believes is adequate? >> yes. i think it's important that we continue in this direction. i was one of those persons who grew up -- i mean my grandmother raised me and my brothers and she worked as a maid and couldn't afford health care. and luckily we had medicare and we were able to go to the doctor and the dentist. i still have my same dentist who has been my dentist since i actually had teeth. i just think it's great that kids and people who don't have access to health care have access to health care. we need to look at ways to move into that direction and i think san francisco has definitely led the way for our president to move forward with obamacare and i'm excited about that and i think we can find more innovative ways

clinic in san francisco clinic, i've complained about this from the very bin -- beginning that the money is not getting into the health system and working on its way down to people who are providing the health. we're in the process now of doing a medical home program and so it's a lot of pressure being put on the workers and see what the patients go through every single day and there are people that should be covered that are working at these places that come to us not covered that can't get their medicine, that we have to do all kind of work around to make sure they get the health care they need, so it's my belief that the money for healthy san francisco needs to go straight into healthy san francisco, we need to cut out the middle people, it's just another mechanism to black people from getting health care from what i see from the patient care end. >> thank you very much, next speaker, mr. lazarus? >> good afternoon, supervisors, chamber of commerce, we appreciate the opportunity last year and way back in 2006 in working with the city in developing healthy san francisco program, the he
